My Story

Hi everyone, my daughter has signed me up for race for life in October, we are going to be tackling 5km to give cancer a run for its money. I lost my dad in Jan of this year and before that, I didn’t really think of how much cancer impacts a life, my dad lost his partner (my step mum) only a month before he lost his, the only comfort I get is that they are now together again. Not only has my Dad suffered from cancer but also my Nan Dwight, uncle Patrick and thankfully the 2 other members of my family have fought it successfully! That’s my aim, I want cancer to have a higher survival rate, so please if you are in a position to donate then please do, it would mean so much to me and to so many other families that have gone through or are going through this horrible disease.

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
